Representation for Oil Workers
We are here to help you. If you are an oil rig or oil tanker worker who has suffered serious job-related injuries, you need the help of an experienced team of lawyers. The boat owner, employer and the insurance company will certainly not give you the full compensation for your injuries, at least not without a fight.
Our Baton Rouge oil platform injury lawyers are prepared for that fight. At Murphy Law Firm LLC, we have more than 30 combined years of legal experience. In that time, we have represented a wide range of captains, deckhands, mates, pilots, cooks, seaman and other crew members who have been seriously hurt on the job, and the families of those who have suffered wrongful death on oil rigs and oil tankers.
Fighting the Insurance Company
" Don't be a victim twice by accepting less than what your case is really worth. The insurance company agents are trained and dedicated to paying out the least amount possible for injury claims. This is what they do best. Let me and my colleagues face the insurance company for you, to ensure that you do not lose your chance to get the full compensation possible in your case. Call me." ∙ Attorney Peyton Murphy ∙ Contact Murphy Law Firm
There are a few important possible sources of compensation. We have experience representing injured oil rig accident victims in:
- Jones Act claims: The Jones Act allows those who qualify as "seamen" to bring lawsuits for civil damages against their employers.
- Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act Claims: The Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act (LHWCA) is a federal act that provides workers' compensation benefits to qualifying employees who work in United States navigable waterways and their adjoining areas.
- Third-party liability claims: If someone else other than your employer or co-workers was in some way responsible for the accident — like the manufacturer of faulty equipment that caused the accident — we could bring a third-party liability claim.
